For a generation that stores memories in sticks and chips, there’s nothing quite like flipping through a family album, unleashing a river of memories, and also an archive of the tremendous changes that have shaped the last few decades – and the way we travel. Ambassador cars that gave way to Maruti Zens and Swifts. Boomboxes that morphed into walkmans and MP3 players. Vayudoot. Liberalisation. Polaroids. Mommy jeans. The Internet. Budget carriers. Airbnb. Some things will never lose their magic, like picnic hampers. And some things await that we can’t fathom yet – perhaps, a future where a hologram is the new selfie.
We got Deepak Narale of Yes Yes, Why Not? and Garima Gupta to illustrate a photo album of the Indian family on vacation from the 1960s to 2050. Scroll down for your shot of nostalgic time-travelling.
Illustrator Deepak Narale is a part of Team Yes Yes, Why Not? – a multi-disciplinary art firm that specialises in creating customised design, art and ideas across genres, canvasses and functions. Garima Gupta is a young apprentice from the Srishti Institute of Art, Design & Technology.
